I am not afraid of rides, at all, but have to say this ride was high. And it just might be because not only was I on this ride, but so was my kid - and his friend. As we went up and up, I kept thinking, this has to be it. We are so high already. But nope up it went. I went through this same conversation in my mind several times before we heard that familiar click that signaled we had reached the top. I guess I expected a bit of a pause before we dropped, but there was not one. I guess maybe that was better, to sit their waiting, if even for a second, might not have been good. Just as we seemed to go up longer than necessary, we also fall for what seemed like forever. I expected it to be over very quickly, and it wasn't. The free fall really was measured in a matter of seconds, but it felt longer to me. We came to a stop and Brian was grinning from ear to ear. That's my boy!
I actually found a video of the ride - from the perspective of being on the ride on YouTube! If you want to see how high it really is click here. I have to say the fall seems so much longer than it looks on the tape!
